All members of the Vermont Tech academic community can borrow library materials using the Vermont State Colleges Library catalog.
DVD & VHS items - 1 week
Books & audio materials - 4 weeks
The number of books you can check out at one time depends on your status:
- Vermont Tech Hartness users may check out 25 books at a time
- CCV Hartness users may check out 15 books at a time
- Guest users may check out 10 books at a time
Limit for DVD & VHS is 5 at a time.
Books and audio materials may be renewed once as long as another person has not requested to borrow them. DVDs and videos are not renewable. Interlibrary Loan materials are not renewable. To review items you have checked out or renew items online, log into the Library catalog's "My Account" feature. You can also contact the Library to request renewals.
If you receive a bill for library materials and still have the item, return it as soon as possible. There may still be a fine. If you don't have the item, send a check made out to "Hartness Library" (or whichever VSC Library owns the book) for the amount indicated on the bill to: Hartness Library, Main St., Randolph Center, VT 05061.
Items not owned by Hartness Library may be borrowed through interlibrary loan (ILL). Requests for ILL material can be made through the VSC library catalog by using the "Multiple Library Search" feature or by filling out an interlibrary loan request form.
The Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries (VCAL) faculty borrowing program allows current CCV faculty to borrow materials from all participating academic libraries. Visit the VCAL Website for more information. To participate, complete the "Borrower Details" portion of the application form, and mail, fax, or email to:
Main St., Randolph Center, VT, 05061

The mission of the library is to serve the students and the academic curriculum of the college. The library is funded primarily by student tuition dollars. For these reasons, not all services are available to the public, and academic activities receive priority at all times. Guest borrowers may not use interlibrary loan, document delivery, or receive off-campus services.
The library is not responsible for supervision of unattended children. We recommend that all children under 16 be accompanied by an adult.
The library does not levy overdue fines, but will charge borrowers for replacement of items not returned. Borrowers who are chronically delinquent will have their borrowing privileges suspended.
Guest Borrowers are subject to the Vermont State College’s computing conditions of use policy (Policy 414), policy on harassment (Policy 311), and all other VSC policies. Failure to observe these policies may result in suspension of privileges and/or access to the library building. The library reserves the right to suspend access or privileges to any person disrupting service to the academic community.
In accordance with the American Library Association’s Policy on Confidentiality of Library Records and Vermont Act 129 (Sec 1.22 VSA chapter 4), the Hartness Library does not reveal any information regarding patron use of the library, unless compelled to do so by a lawfully issued court order, or by permission of the patron. Our relationship with our users is strictly confidential in nature. This policy of confidentiality applies to patron circulation records, use of computers and the Internet, and to any services rendered by the library.
Reporting unlawful acts:
Library staff is not responsible for monitoring the behavior of our patrons. It is not our role to make judgment about the intent of our patron’s actions.
